Edible Indian Corn Treats
Ingredients & Supplies Needed:
4 TB Butter
4 Cups Mini Marshmallows
5 Cups Puffed Corn Cereal
1/3 Cup Assorted Dried Fruit pieces (Papaya, Raisins, Apricots & Craisins)
Popsicle sticks
Fruit Leather

1. In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows over low heat (about 5 minutes).
2. Remove the mixture from the stove and use a wooden spoon to stir in puffed corn cereal and diced dried fruit. Allow the mixture to cool for about 10 minutes.
3. Using buttered hands, shape each treat by pressing 1/3 cup of the mixture around a Popsicle stick. Add fruit leather husks to the bottom of the ear, slightly moistening them to help them stick if needed. Makes 15 treats.
